The majestic Lion belongs to the genus Panthera, which is the family of the largest cats. Located in the heart of Sonoma County, the Russian River Valley is home to over 15,000 acres of grapevines. The winemaking team selects vineyard sites that provide the very best wine grapes to craft wines expressive of this region. The cooler climates of the Russian River Valley are ideal for varietals like Chardonnay, which flourishes and develops uniquely rich flavors that are complemented by a bright, fresh acidity.

As fifth generation Hess family, Tim and Sabrina Persson maintain Donald Hess’ founding commitment to craft world-renowned wines.
They continually pursue innovation with the Hess winemaking team to develop complex wines that reflect a true sense of place.

The majestic Lion belongs to the genus Panthera, which is the family of the largest cats. The Lion, or Panthera Leo as it is classified scientifically, is one of the most notable members of this group. With its mighty mane and recognizable features, the Lion has become an iconic image worldwide, and is also the symbol of the Hess family.

The Lion has been the emblem of the Hess family for generations, and the Lions Head Collection of wines pays homage to the family emblem, as well as represents the new generation of the Hess Family’s vision to craft wines of distinction.

"The word Panthera is believed to be of East Asian origin, meaning ‘the yellowish animal’ or golden-yellow. As a reflection of this moniker, we have crafted a striking golden-yellow Chardonnay that is opulent in style and beautifully textured. Rich and creamy upon entry with notes of lemon curd, crème brulee and candied lemon peel, this wine presents beautiful layers of stone fruit.

Unctuous but focused, Panthera Chardonnay offers notes of buttered French toast and hints of well-integrated smoky oak that persist through a satisfying, long finish.”

The name “Lion Tamer” has become a nickname for Malbec because we use it as our tannin tamer. Much like a Lion Tamer who uses a deft hand to soothe powerful, instinctive animals, Winemaker Dave Guffy uses Malbec to soothe powerful tannins. This red blend brings all the roar of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah, and when blended with Malbec, produces a big, lush wine that finishes with smooth and tamed round tannins.
